Delayed

Update: That capuccino in the VIP lounge might be worth the money we paid on our tickets! LOL. It´s 3:30 a.m. and I am getting punchy. I want to go see my boys.

Update: Finished our free dinner at 2 a.m. and feeling a little better. The flight leaves at 6:30. Trying to figure out international calling cards to contact Pedro´s brother and the car rental company.

Deja vu from our first trip to meet the boys ... our second (and most important) flight is delayed by SIX HOURS. We just spent two hot long hours waiting in vain for standby on an AA flight. Words cannot express my disgust with LAN right now. The agents admit this was not a weather incident and it is fully the responsibility of the airline. Just because I had to get it off my chest I made it clear that we had other, cheaper options and we chose LAN because we trusted them. Scathing e-mail of complaint mailed already. I am so frustrated right now. In tears.

I just read on CNN about the orphans arriving in Orlando tonight. How exciting to think they were talking about your boys! I am praying that you get some rest and no more delays or complications. I am also praying for the orphanage workers as they are saying goodbye to many of the children they have loved and cared for.

Hi Stephanie. I just came across your site (I did a google search for "boys home Haiti" to see how the boys are at the St. Joseph's boys home as I stayed there about 13 years ago). I have taken the time to read about your rollercoaster adoption ride, and to pray for you. I hope that Alec & Ian will be in your arms VERY soon. God bless you & your family. I can't imagine your frustration right now, but remember that God's timing is perfect. He's in control & loves you & the boys soooo much! Laurie

I cry every time I check in on your blog Steph. I'm so excited and anxious for you and I know that your flight delay is just a last little hurdle to get to your boys. I'm praying that the time will pass quickly until they are in your arms TONIGHT!
